I’ve been using Hugo Pipes to concatenate, minify, and fingerprint CSS and it works great! Thank you for this feature!
I’m currently working on an open source Go project (it’s not a Hugo project) and was searching for an asset pipeline that worked in a similar fashion. I came across Hugulp which looks really cool, but seems to require nodejs. I’d love if everything could be done in Go using Pipes, but maybe I don’t understand how this is currently working in Hugo.
Would it be technically feasible to release Hugo Pipes as a Go Module that could be used on other projects that use Go templates, or is that not even possible?
I was poking around and it looks like a lot of the magic might be happening in “resources”:
- Fingerprinting: resources/resource_transformers/integrity/integrity.go
- Minifying: resources/resource_transformers/minifier/minify.go and also
minifiers/minifiers.go with the help of tdewolff/minify
- Concat: resources/resource_factories/bundler/bundler.go
